Q: I have a bump on my nipple (pics included)

I've had this small bump on my right areola of my nipple for about 2 years now. I was expecting it to go away or something but it hasn't. It doesn't hurt or anything and it hasn't grown. When I squeeze it hard enough some pus or whatever comes out similar to a pimple.

What is it?

Could be a chronic irritaiton of some kind, perhaps of the oil glands around your nipple. If it hasn't really changed in 2 years, it's unlikely it would be a cancer symptom. However, you might want to consider having it checked by a doctor, to find out what it is and treat it, if necessary. Good luck - PJH
